bomar hatch repair

I've got opening bomar ports from '89... I've communicated with many other owners of similar sailboats and we can't get replacements of the opening part (lexan plus frame). The hinges are slightly different placement on each port. But we found a company that makes lenses which can adjusted to fit the hinges...

Re: bomar hatch repair

Same here, I have a cracked aluminum lens which needs to be replaced. I ordered the new hatch and would like to just replace the lens, if it is enough to keep the hatch water tight. These pins I am reading about, sounds like they are reusable? If not, they can be bought at an automotive shop? What about replacing the entire hatch, frame and lens? A big hassle? Difficult?
Thanks for any advice!!!
Cheers,
Lex

Re: bomar hatch repair

Replacing the hatch in total is very easy to do but Bomar hatches are not cheap (we have the ones with reinforcing bars). We now have all of our hatches and ports out and disassembled. They are now being powder-coated. After that we will put in new plastic and then reinstall. Lots of work but once every 35 years or so.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
